Energy Efficiency in Historic Buildings conference

The Irish Department of the Environment, Heritage and Local Government and the Irish Georgian Society present the Energy Efficiency in Historic Buildings conference, to be held in Dublin Castle on the 10th March 2009.

This one day conference will examine the technical and practical issues of improving the energy efficiency of historic buildings. The conference will address current research on the contribution of existing buildings to sustainability, the assessment of the energy performance of traditionally built buildings and explore the options that exist for making a building more energy efficient while avoiding damage to its fabric or to its character.

The keynote speaker will be Dr Nigel Blades of The National Trust for England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

This conference will be of interest not only to conservation architects, engineers, planners and building energy assessors but also to owners of historic buildings, in particular owners of Protected Structures and buildings located within Architectural Conservation Areas, who wish to reduce their energy emissions and costs.

The fee for attendance at the conference is €95 (including full lunch).
